Temperatures rose to 105 degrees in the Bakersfield area Tuesday afternoon. Not everyone was miserable, though. A group of family and friends splashed their way to relief in the Kern River near Yokuts Park. A high of 106 degrees is forecasted Wednesday with temperatures hovering at or near 100 degrees through the weekend.
